Ghouls in the myths and legends
Rams soon learned that among the Siberian Old Believer mysterious vampire devouring human entrails, is much more important place than bloodsucker vampire or ghoul, the Hungarians, the Celts, Britons or Germans. Up until the early XX century in Siberia and the Urals vampires feared more than mermaids, water, and other undead Shishiga in abundance vodivsheysya in those parts. Local beliefs that came with immigrants from Ukraine and Russia in the north, are the ghouls army of Satan, which gives the bodies of dead people incredible strength and makes them do a bloody evil.
Fortunately, not every dead man stands under a black flag that terrible host. Chance to become a vampire after death are very high at the murderers, sorcerers and suicide, as well as people who have died without repentance or church dedicated church anathema. For this reason, in the old days of the dead were not buried in the general cemetery, because many energy bodies lying in the ground, nourishing the potential ghouls mystic power by which they rise from the grave.
However, it can become a terrible creature and a man, not mired in the life of sin.

The most common in Eastern Europe and Trans is the so-called man-eater, or scavenger. This essence is reborn from improperly buried person, or of a man attacked by vampires. It is believed that the ogre has a greenish color, outside fully stinking slime, and the fingers of his hands are long hooked claws. The main purpose-eating ghoul — dine fresh human flesh, and he never eats it through. Thus it reproduces itself like ghouls. However, this kind of evil is not above using the corpses of dead people and animals.
Aquatic species is latsedon Geist — a man who died on board the ship and thrown into the water without proper funeral rites. Water Geist has webbed feet, covered with a greenish slime-like algae, and drinking human blood.

The danger of most vampires is that they are very similar in appearance to the common people. That's just evil fire burning eyes, sallow hands so foul odor coming from them, can give this evil. Ghouls seldom attack a group of people, but the lone wanderer, being in the wrong place at the wrong time, almost no salvation. No bullet or a knife or a club does not kill the ghoul.
Siberian conservatives believe that even the garlic, so effective in the fight against vampires and ghouls, ghoul does not cause serious harm.
